Werner Herzog has claimed that cooking is the only alternative to filmmaking. He may be onto something; Both activities start with a collection of ingredients, and combine them to make a new creation to be consumed and enjoyed by others. But meal preparation on film is never merely about making a delicious dish. Food has a literary significance, and is often symbolic. This delicious video is a whirlwind tour of many types of cuisine, and the many different genres of film that make a case for food as love. Yum!
